Chess Mates

This is not your average chess class, but rather a movement that is changing the world through a new kind of chess education. We are passionate about the importance of creating change and we have impacted the lives of students throughout many communities by instituting the building blocks for development, with help from the critical and creative skills that come hand in hand with fun and exciting chess education.

Our team is dedicated to teaching chess in a fun and educational way, so that children of any age can join in, regardless of experience level. We teach younger students through stories and songs, allowing them to understand concepts that may have hard to grasp before. For older and more advanced students, we teach openings, strategies and tactics through the use of games and team-based chess puzzles.

If you wish for your child to be part of an evolutionary way of learning chess – one that allows their creative, mental and social sides to develop, as well as to empower others – we would love to see you there!

About the Classes

  • The program will be available for students from Prep to Year 5
  • Classes run from 3.00pm to 4:00 pm in B block every Thursday
  • The cost will be $10 per session

For more information and to sign up for Chess Club, please email info@chessmates.com.au or call Ash on 0415 256 452. For every person who enrols, they will receive a chess board.
